Thanks Bruce, Mike & George.

Nice work Bruce. Could fill in as the Alamo.
Very solid looking, as I guess sand would put a lot of outward pressure on the sides.
Dutchman Posted - 02/24/2021 : 5:19:40 PM
The sand bin portion of my Sand House build is quickly coming together. I added a wood base and rail sections as internal braces. Both recommended in the instructions, but not included with the kit.

George D Posted - 02/24/2021 : 10:20:54 AM
It's fascinating to watch your building grow, Rob.

Michael Hohn Posted - 02/24/2021 : 09:11:21 AM
Looks great, Rob. The new section adds a lot to the overall structure. The gable trim contributes in particular.

Dutchman Posted - 02/24/2021 : 08:47:35 AM
That looks great attached to the main structure, Rob. I think that achieved your goal on that last roof section.

robert goslin Posted - 02/24/2021 : 03:27:52 AM
I've now finished it off this small section.
I made a gable trim, and the finial is actually a toothpick.

For the roof I wanted a slightly different look, so I did shingles again, but have also added tar paper as well, to look like a repair.

And here's how it looks when attached to the main structure. I've also temporarily added some windows. I usually don't add my windows till last so I don't get any paint on the glass.

Thanks Bruce, Larry & Mike.
Bruce, you sure are a busy man this year. 3rd structure already. nice going.

Mike, I really like your build. You always do nice metal roofs.
Michael Hohn Posted - 02/23/2021 : 8:43:19 PM
Very good job on the house, Mike.
Dutchman Posted - 02/23/2021 : 6:11:22 PM
What George said about your roof, Mike. Great job!
George D Posted - 02/23/2021 : 4:26:57 PM
Very nice little house, Mike. You nailed the coloring on the roof.

mikethetrainman Posted - 02/23/2021 : 3:34:24 PM
I finished the company house. I did a little more weathering on the roof and added a figure to the front porch.

That's it for this little project. On to the next challenge project. This one I will post has a separate thread. Thanks everyone for looking.
mikethetrainman Posted - 02/23/2021 : 3:26:07 PM
Bruce Kate's Kitchen and Lily's Livery came out looking great. It been a long time since I've seen the old Campball's sand house. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Rob Thanks for the kind comment. Your build just keeps getting more interesting with all the different levels and angles. Great work.
Dutchman Posted - 02/23/2021 : 09:31:15 AM
I have finished two projects for the Challenge, but there is plenty of time left for a third. I pulled this Campbell Sand House kit down off the shelf.

I have started work on the sand bin.

The full build can be found at this link: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=53632&whichpage=1

Larryc Posted - 02/22/2021 : 3:01:16 PM
Mike some how I missed your building. Nice job and love the metal roof; great weathering job.

Rob the building just keeps looking better with each new addition.
Dutchman Posted - 02/21/2021 : 08:10:31 AM
All the 'protrusions' and various roof lines are really making the structure interesting, Rob.
